Donations, for any amount of money, are always welcome.
TEMS does not receive any grant funding, and we rely on local support to keep us going.
We would be very interested to hear from any local business or individuals willing to sponsor a concert. We are happy to tailor any concert to reflect your musical preference, and typically receive support varying from £100 to £300. Sponsors receive eight concert tickets (ticket price £96/£80), are mentioned on all promotional material (press releases, posters, programme, season launch Newsletter etc) and can be featured at the concert.
To discuss how you can sponsor or donate and how your donation may be used, please contact TEMS’ chair, Jill Tomalin, on (01803) 849414.
Friends and Patrons
As a small society without grant funding, we continue to face financial risks every year, as we commit to spending more than £4,000 before securing subscriptions and ticket sales.
TEMS, in 2008, raised c.£2000 as a one-off 'insurance policy' which is kept in a separate account to underwrite any losses. This was made possible by the generosity of members which remains much appreciated.
